Colletti agrees to long-term extension

The Dodgers and general manager Ned Colletti have come to an agreement on a multi-year contract extension that will be announced later today.

Colletti and the club had a mutual option for next season, but after guiding the team to back-to-back National League West titles for the first time since 1977-78, it has been widely expected Colletti would soon earn an extension.

Colletti was hired after the 2005 season, inheriting a club that went 71-91. Since then, the Dodgers have made the playoffs in four of five years. They have the second best won-loss record in the NL during Colletti’s tenure, behind only Philadelphia, whom they currently trail in the NLCS three games to one.
